  Build Your Ultimate Bugout for National Knife Day 2023

This week's Saturday Slicer is ready to face the adventures of the new year. The Benchmade Mini Crooked River combines the American knife brand's excellent fit, finish, and materials to a folding hunting knife design that's scaled down for a more convenient EDC. 

The blade itself is made of a premium S30V steel, boasting excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance to stand up to tough tasks in harsh outdoor conditions. Its clip point geometry offers classic hunting knife performance, secured by Benchmade's rock-solid, ambidextrous AXIS lock mechanism. 

While the handle might look old school, it's fitted with modern, high-performance materials too. The stabilized Dymondwood scale is actually a wood/resin composite that offers better durability compared to natural wood. Last but not least, hi-vis orange accents on the pivot and backspacer, a lanyard attachment hole, and a reversible tip-up pocket clip round out the knife. Check it out at the link below.
